I had an epiphany in my lecture about Minoa today. There’s a city from ancient Egypt called Zoan. The Zoan type devil fruits as we all know give people animal powers. The ancient Egyptians would often depict animal-human hybrids in art and hieroglyphics. Therefore, Oda names the Zoan classification after Zoan, Egypt, because he knew how the Egyptians would represent the gods with animal heads and human bodies.
